i suppose it's unrelated but, after hearing two strange breaks in my playing
music (with mplayer), and after seeing the processor at max, i've lost
contact to my keyboard, then, after connecting another keyboard (usb, this
time), i've lost contact with my usb mouse, too. at this point the music was
strangely still playing. this is my home f14 computer. i hope nobody
backported the pulseaudio problem to f14 :) i've enabled the ssh server and
i'll report back if anything new shows up.
